what is the output of
./g branch

(iow did you checkout branch 3-5 on  clone/help  too ?)

For the record, the easiest way is to clone the repo. autogen on
master do make fectht odownload all the dep, including the other git
repos needed, and _then_
do ./g checkout -b  to checkout another branch than master

since I suspect that was not the case, and that the repos in clone/*
are sill on master, you need to run

./g -f checkout -b xxxxx   (the same command you used to checkout the
3.5 branch except using ./g instead of git and -f to make ./g continue
despite core being already on the 'right' branch)
